sonny - it has always been my understanding since I started my PCa journey that testosterone feeds PCa - and reducing testosterone can slow the PSA numbers through HT.
- the link seems to be one big advertisement and not research piece - I would not put much faith in that... just like the guy with the bee pollen curing cancer page ....
in the mean time -click on this website from Princess Margaret Hospital - and use the information guide your visit link - hormone therapy www.prostatecentre.ca/
it even has video and animation.
- found this article about
testosteron and PCa - at: www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000380.htm
and it included new elements regarding those at risk - farmers ( I guess herbicides and pesticides) , tire plant workers, painters and those exposed to cadmium ( aritsts using certain paints !!)
